The war scenes were done well and often humorously. The battlefields of Falkirk, York, and Stirling were brought back to life, including the beautiful scenery of 13th Century Europe.
James Horner did another flawless job having done scores for more than 115 movies. Titanic, Apollo 13, and Aliens, are just a few. The music of the movie added a lot of depth to the intensity of the movie, and helped demonstrate how much the prize of freedom is worth, and what lengths some people would go for it.
The costumes and blue face paint made the Gibson and his army look like true rebels. You notice how after every scene, their rags are more bloody, and more land is conquered. Gibson is also fighting for revenge, after the murder of his wife, and inspires him to do some pretty brutal acts, all that make this movie more enjoyable.
Braveheart is a truly inspirational movie, and one of Mel Gibson's best performances. The movie mostly fighting, but it keeps the entertainment and excitement up, although it drags a few times sporadically. The ending was good, and again shouted the message of freedom. Gibson delivers a few of his memorable speeches to keep the morale of his country high, and urges them to fight on. Backed with several awards, Braveheart proved to be a good movie, and another credit to Gibson's outstanding career.
